I agree and IMHo they've overplayed their hand on several levels the internal political game is only one example.
Now that he’s 70, he should retire and let the country move on. He can’t form a government, and he’s had his time in the sun.
> Israel is becoming ungovernable <
And it will be worse if Israel goes ahead and annexes huge portions of the West Bank. Because then youd have many more Israeli Arab voters.
Incompetent -"David may not build a house for my name because he is a man of war and has shed blood" 1 Chr 22:8
Jealous - Commits adultery with Bathsheba
Headstrong and a murderer - Arranges for the death of Uriah.
David was all those things.
What’s the feeling on the ground there?
What is Gantz all about?
david also repented and was referred to as a man after Gods own heart
David was not incompetent before the sin, only after. He was already old by that time.
God did not allow him to build the temple because he was a man of war, not peace. Solomon had peace from the beginning.
David did gather the materials necessary to build the temple.
Because of David’s sin, he had no peace in his house until the day he died, even having to flee for his life from his own son.
Hmmm. So much that “big win” for Likud and “callin’ it for Bibi right now” and “worst case scenario is a Netanyahu-run minority government” you were confidently claiming would happen when the numbers came in on election day.
Almost all of the heroes of the Bible were flawed (Jesus, and Mary excepted). They were human, and did human things. The message? Forgiveness and redemption.
I can only speak for myself. But Naftali Bennett isn’t going to be the PM, so I’ll settle for Gantz and hope for the best. Military record does not equal right wing, unfortunately. But I don’t think he’s another Ehud Barak.
Very real possibility that Gantz will form a minority government, with the Liberman faction and Arabs not a part of it, but cooperating with it to keep out Netanyahu.
Such a government wouldnt last long, but it would put off another election for a year or two.
Very possible Gantz would abide by his power-sharing agreement with uberLeftist Lapid. PM Lapid. Try that for size!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
What is your take on an outcome for this situation?
Its 28 days to form a new government - not 3. Gantz, holding only 44 seats and who has never served in politics, will try to do what Bibi could not. If he cannot, then there will be a new election in the Spring, with Bibi leading the interim government.
David was teachable and OBEDIENT.
Saul was not.
David humbled himself before God....................
When confronted with his sin David wept, repented, and cried out to God for mercy.
When confronted with his sin, Saul made excuses and tried to justify it.
When weak, appear strong. When strong, appear weak.
Solomon was 13 when he took the throne, so the sins committed happened 14 years prior to Davids death................
Huh. I was sure Solomon was 20 when he took the throne. I searched through the Bible and the best I could find was that his son Rheaboam was 41 when he became king, which means he was born a year before Solomon became king, which meant he was conceived two years before. If Solomon were 20 at kingship that'd make him 18 at marriage.
Why do you think Solomon was 13?
